Thai Chicken soup to me is the ultimate comfort food. Over the years, Ive made different versions, but Im really partial to this one flavoured with Thai Red Curry paste and oozing with mushrooms. While I love mushrooms in general, I love the use of Enoki in this and other soups. It gives the soup a noodle like texture without the carbs win win!
Even though I do love to make my own Red Curry Paste, I make this one with canned curry paste, which is actually really good and convenient! I have used Chicken in this recipe, however the Thai flavours and mushrooms are the real stars so its very easy to make this totally vegetarian as well!
